Example text

Indeed, the most important aspect of this text is in its very naming of a phenomenon – corporate violence. Corporate violence? In Hills’s (1987a) use of the term ‘corporate violence’ – so accurate, yet so jarring in the light of the ways in which the term violence is predominately used in criminology – we have further, stark illustrations of the possible incompatibilities between criminology and the study of corporate crimes against health and safety. Let us consider in a little more detail the dominant constructions of violence which pervade the discipline.

Thus, an understanding of changing levels of corporate risk to workers’ and citizens’ health and safety requires attention to factors which include the following: the abilities of capital to relocate within and beyond national boundaries, and thereby to export hazard and risk; trends in labour markets and employment patterns, not least attempts to imitate models of flexibility claimed to exist in the US and Japan; the nature of, and changes in, contractual arrangements and methods of payment; and the introduction of new technologies and new forms of work organization, particularly in terms of the impact of these upon workers’ skills and functions.
